I would do two things:
1. Clean up the documentation in an obvious way by changing specific
values, field names, windows, screen captures, or any other specific
feature that may be considered proprietary to something random and made up.
For example if a hardware model name is "RX5275", change it to "TE3470,"
which is a random name that I just made up. The people reading your
portfolio are not interested in the content, but rather in the writing
style and document setup.
2. Where it says in the header and footer "proprietary and confidential,"
change to "shared with permission." This makes it obvious to the reader
that you have permission to share these files.

Hope this helps,
